In the article Cosmetics Expire!! I discuss the expiration dates of makeup items. If you are like me, I can never finish certain makeup items by the expiration date. Mascara is the one cosmetic that should be replaced every three months. The truth is there is so much more mascara left in regular size mascara wands after three months. It seems pointless to toss a full size product that hasn’t been used up after such a short period of time. I honestly don’t even want to imagine all of the tubes of mascara being tossed in land fills every year.
Natural cosmetics that are safe for the body as well as recycling as much as possible is very important to me. I found that 100% Pure offers mini mascaras with packaging from post recycled and or recyclable materials with soy ink labels, are 100% vegan, and are 100% cruelty free. I’ve reviewed 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Mascara here and fell in love. I did not mention at the time that they come in mini mascara tubes too.
